The original MCEC was opened by Jeff Kennett in 1996.
MCEC hosted just under 1,300 events last financial year and the biggest in terms of attendance was the much-loved Royal Childrens Hospital Good Friday Appeal extravaganza, which saw 85,000 people flock to the centre.
On Friday, MCEC will receive 6,000 delegates to the Australia-China Economic Trade and Investment Expo.
Mr Pakula today confirmed another new event on the MCEC calendar the CODA 2020 healthcare conference which will bring up to 3,000 delegates to Victoria and inject an estimated $14 million into the economy.

As a result, the established study targeted a widespread and deepening understanding of the processes of internationalization of research MCEC. This objective was pursued through the analysis and evaluation of national cultural dimensions of their influence on the process.
To acheive a broader understanding of the theoretical framework of reference about the MNCs, the MCEC, and Brazilian MNCs, we sought initially to explain the MNCs in developing countries; in particular MCEC, then later in Latin America, and finally in Brazil.
This fact enabled the development of the marketing strategy seeking MCEC of these countries.
Regarding MCEC, the theory of specific locational advantages is an application of the conventional theory about the ET in general to MCEC as reported by Yeung and Chung (1999).
